Lovebirds Habitat and Behavior
In the wild, Lovebirds habitat is tree branches. They like to make nests out of thick branches and leaves. They fly around places that have tress around where they can rest and easily grab small insects. They are fond of living in small holes and thus they sometimes look for hollow depressions in tress.
Lovebirds are known to be highly affectionate and loveable parrots. They get their name because of the long hours they spend sitting together on the same stems.
Lovebirds are pleasant birds who can entertain families in a polite way. They like to hide under paper, in pockets or anything they can get under and be mischievous. They learn tricks easily but are not very talkative. Happiness is the key to their affection but it is possible for them to be violent; they may kill weaker birds or those behave erratically.
Lovebirds behave best in pairs or groups as a single bird can get lonely. If the birds are too old they may become nippy therefore young lovebirds are a better choice.
Hand-raised lovebirds familiarize themselves eagerly to new environments and handling actions. They should be open to all elements early in life so that they are well attuned to these events. Regulations, management, patience, hooding, and offering rewards are essential to adapt the behavior of Lovebirds. Even with training some Lovebirds cannot be relied upon and may bite when they are annoyed.
Most frequently seen Lovebirds in captivity are Peach-faced, Masked and Fischer’s Lovebirds. Peach-faced Lovebird is habitually regarded as the smartest one, but the other two have enjoyable personalities.
